+2 Castle windows boarded and livestock let loose to graze on Lynhurst property in 1904 after George Joslyn and his wife left Nebraska. JOSLYN CASTLE TRUST At least the cows were happy.For a time in the spring and summer of 1904, a small herd of cattle roamed one of the finest lawns in Omaha. They munched on lush grass and ambled around carefully chosen ornamental trees and shrubbery, hardly minding the sparkling new mansion, abandoned, its windows boarded up.
Biographers and scholars know of just one full-length letter from celebrated novelist Willa Cather to her longtime companion, Edith Lewis.Written in October 1936 while Cather was away in New Hampshire, the letter contains more than 300 words. But, for decades, Cather researchers have drawn most of their conclusions from just one sentence.“Everything you packed carried wonderfully,” Cather wrote to Lewis.
There was a time when, strolling through the opulent halls of Joslyn Castle, you might have caught a whiff of cigar smoke or heard the faint clinking of glasses coming from the basement.George Joslyn was a man who appreciated a good party. When he and his wife built their famous home in the early 1900s, George made sure to make room for his own basement man cave, complete with smoking room, billiards room, personal gym and bowling alley.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
